Music: Way too many to list. Rock, electro, industrial, hip hop,
classical, jazz, reggae, ambient, pop, and even country! There's
something good in every genre.
TV: I lean towards comedies (30 Rock, Curb Your Enthusiasm,
Eastbound & Down, etc.) and documentaries (Louis Theroux,
Jacques Cousteau, David Attenborough, etc.) but also love the more
recent American HBO dramas, like Six Feet Under, The Sorpranos and
Game of Thrones.
Film: Again, way too many to name. I like a lot of films by Martin
Scorcese, Clint Eastwood, the Coen brothers, Robert Altman, some
Steven Spielberg, P.T. Anderson, Nicolas Winding Refn, Lars Von
Trier, Steve McQueen, David Fincher and Werner Herzog.
Books: Heaps and heaps! Stuff by authors like Ray Bradbury, Kurt
Vonnegut, Henry Miller, Truman Capote, Ian McEwan, John Steinbeck,
Vladimir Nabokov, Ernest Hemmingway, David Mitchell, Franz Kafka,
Philip K. Dick, Harold Pinter, Tennessee Williams, George Orwell...
I should really stop now.
